Interior Design in Surbiton, Kingston Upon Thames


The Brief

Conversion of a basement previously utilized as a children’s playroom into a fun entertainment room for teenagers and adults to enjoy.

Planning Process

The basement has two structural columns and a lower ceiling area within the room. The main objective during the planning process was to make them look like they always were meant to be there. To achieve this we worked with the existing architecture of the room and increase the size of the columns to make them fit within the design, converting the columns into a feature rather than an obstacle.

How It Went

This has not only been a fun project to work on but also one that has run really smoothly all round from the perspective of client and designer working in unison and thereby facilitating an accelerated decision-making process.

Issues / Problems Overcome During The Project

There were a large amount of big items required to be incorporated into the final room, including a ping pong table that we cleverly concealed behind a closed bespoke cabinet. This was achieved by carefully working out the logistics of storing it in and out of the cupboard and having the negative space within the room to position it when open.

Client Testimonial

Following project completion, the client has commissioned Tailored Living Interiors to work on other rooms within the property. Another great excuse to keep returning to lovely leafy Surbiton.
